    I will try to get you some later. 

    The footage I have was mostly shot with an ND filter and that might affect the colors a bit. So will probably want to shoot some new footage for you.

    Thank you so much! That would be incredible.

    Hope someone makes a MFT speedbooster with a eVND element in it that is powered off the pins with AF pass through. Have no clue if technically possible but I know I would pay good money for the convenience. 

    I've wondered if that would be possible as well. My assumption is that there wouldn't be enough space for both a eVND and the glass elements needed for a speedbooster. But again, I also don't know. 

  3. Honestly though, with an adapter like that, you get XLR inputs, unlimited recording, 10bit, 4k 60p, INTERNAL NDs, headphone jack, and flip LCD screen on a GH5. That's nuts.

    I definitely plan on getting one. It would be interesting to see how the CAF works on the Olympus bodies, that could be pretty crazy. 

  4. Honestly, I am stoked on this. If I somehow get my hands on some extra cash I would love to pick up a used E-M1 mkii or one of these E-M5 mkiii.

    I shoot mostly on a GH5 and having one of these as my second cam would be killer. Good AF for the times I need it and the Gh5 for when I need 10bit / 4k60.

    Olympus is doing good stuff. Plus M43 is a killer mount and I love the sensor size. 


    For the past 3 years I have been working full-time as a volunteer with a non-profit organization creating videos and motion graphics for them. For a majority of this time I have been living in Thailand on the field with them. This is small snapshot of some of the projects I have created with them.

    It was June then, and is September now, I'm not surprised we haven't seen the camera yet. 

    (if one exists??)

    Yeah, not surprised we haven't seen a physical camera either. Just curious if there has been any other talk of it or rumors of them still pursuing it.

    Cool shots.  The first one looks a little higher exposure on the skin tones than the others, but that's easily fixable.

    The GH5 is a real gem, still relevant many years after its release, and even has features that some new release cameras do not (eg, 4k60, or, you know, not overheating).  The 10-bit is a pleasure to work with, even if you don't nail exposure (which I definitely don't).  I really like mine :) 

    Thanks for the feedback! Its from the same take as the other on the bottom so maybe I messed up the grade on it. I'll have to take a look. Great catch. Thank you!

    Are the MFT SLR anamorphic really that bad? I’m often tempted even tho’ the x2 looks slightly absurd on P4k but have never got round to it.

    I don’t want the hassle of adapters etc etc so they have obvious attractions but if the image is as terrible as implied then maybe I should stay away. 

    I have the compact 40 1.33x 

    It's not horrible, it really isnt. I've really enjoyed mine, but will probably sell it cause I don't use it enough for my actual jobs. I've used some messy b-roll for some paid gigs but nothing solely using them. 

    If you want to play around with anamorphic it's fantastic. If you aren't obsessed with sharpness they're fun. If you don't need quick focus theyre easy. All in all a really fun piece to mess around with.

    Yeah its perfectly fine with a speedbooster or the right lenses. With more inexpensive M43 lenses though I've never been satisfied with DOF on M43, at least for run and gun stuff where you don't have control of location and such.  

    I love having full frame as an option but shooting super shallow isn't always the most realistic. Its really hard to stay in focus at f2 on full frame. 

    I've used the Panny 15mm f1.7 and the Sigma 30mm f1.4 and they are plenty good. I even used the Sigma 18-35mm NON speedboosted for some good results (just waiting on that variable ND adapter). I would personally love to see something like a 25-50mm f/1.4 or f1.7 that would probably never leave my GH5 if it existed.

    Ugh, I'm so torn right now - I could sell the XT3 and buy a used GH5 with the ULTRA Metabones speedbooster. I'm very happy with Fuji's pictures, but video? Handheld is more of my style and I absolutely can't do it, since it has no IBIS. Is it that much of a difference for photography between these two cameras?

    I had the Fuji XT-3 for a while and switched back to the GH5. 

    GH5 has bad auto focus, you have a micro 4/3 sensor, etc... BUT man this camera is incredible. I missed it the instant I got the Fuji.

    Fuji definitely has some plus sides and really great color. For photos I prefer the Fuji but the GH5 does great. One thing nice about the Fuji is the AF in 120fps full HD. But again I can get over that. 

    If you do run'n'gun / handheld or anything of that sort. I would go GH5. It's a killer camera. Once they get a variable ND Micro4/2 to EF adapter the GH5 becomes a killer camera. Also don't fall for the noise around the depth of field not being shallow enough, it's plenty good.
